Covid Phasing for Washington County: The public health officers of our region has been asking the Oregon Health Authority for flexible assistance for weeks. They have now crafted a proposal for a new phase between phase 1 and 2, so that more businesses can be operating. This information was shared publicly at the Washington County Board of Commissioners meeting this past Tuesday, October 27.
